Mocha in the Stanwell 37

I had some time before I had to head into work  yesterday AM, so I figured I might as well try out the Stanwell 37 prior to my root canal causing me to avoid the pipe for 2 weeks or so. It was an absolutely beautiful morning to sit outside for a smoke. I filled up the Stanwell with some Mocha from Continental, a blend I’ve tasted previously but never enjoyed a full bowl myself. I had a little trouble staying lit at first.. but that kind of worked itself out for a while.

I must say the taste of a whole bowl was not what I expected. This is a tobacco I enjoy small hints of, but I’ve learned a whole bowl was a bit too goopy and wet. It left my pipe a mess, and left me with a not so great aftertaste and a dry mouth. I’ll give it a go again with some Denicool crystals; perhaps the first smoke of it was just some kind of fluke, or perhaps the Stanwell  had something to do with it and isn’t as great of a pipe to smoke as it is to look at. Time will tell :)
